‘Battle Royale Wordle’ Just Isn’t For Folks Who Play The Game To Relax
By Mikelle Leow, 23 Feb 2022
Thanks or no thanks to the internet, Wordle has changed. What started out as a peaceful brain teaser has grown limbs to include ad-tracking and more, with the game having just moved into the New York Times portfolio.
Instead of playing the game on your own and at your own pace, Squabble introduces other players who will race you in battle royale fashion to be the last one standing. Keyboard warriors, your time is now.
And you won’t just be fighting other players, but also for survival. Each player is given health points that deteriorate over time and are replenished when they spell out the correct letters or words.

Squabble has two modes: There’s a ‘Blitz’ variation that lets you play in a group of five, and the more intense ‘Battle Royale’ option for 99 people.
The stress is palpable because you’re sort of playing the beloved puzzler in a life-or-death situation. Anyhow, we overcame the pressure and defeated the other four players during our trial round.
When all is done, you can even hit ‘Replay’ to watch how everyone fared. Squabble also includes a dark mode and colorblind mode, and it intends to optimize the game for mobile devices as well as offer solo and daily options in the near future.
